Tamara is addicted to chocolate. The only retailer that sells her favourite brand of chocolate bar is
Aldi Supermarkets. Tamara goes to her local Aldi Supermarket every day to buy her favourite
chocolate bar but it is often sold out. She gets very upset when this happens.
One wet Saturday morning in January Tamara is walking down the confectionary aisle of her local
